Jeffrey Epstein victim suing his estate for more than $25million

One of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell's alleged victims is asking his estate for more than $25million in compensation, court documents reveal.

The unnamed woman, who claims Epstein recruited her aged 13 and abused her for five years, says the amount is to reflect 'significant past and future pain and suffering'.

She claims to have suffered extensive 'emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life' after enduring 'horrific' rapes and sexual assaults at the hands of Epstein.

The request for compensation 'in excess' of $25million is one of the first numbers to emerge for individual claims against Epstein's estate.

Given that there are more than 100 potential claimants already, a sizable portion of his $650million estate looks set to be handed over in compensation.

The sum is not what the woman is seeking from the compensation fund, which is being administered independently of the estate.

Instead it is what she is seeking from Epstein's estate in a civil lawsuit she has brought against it.

The lawsuit is one of the few still in progress as most others have been stayed so the women involved can take part in the compensation scheme - a requirement of taking part.

The figure emerged in a filing by Mary Grace Metcalfe, an attorney with New York based law firm Troutman Sanders, which is representing Epstein's estate.

She said that the woman stated in documents provided to the estate that her 'damages are in excess of $25,000,000'.

The filing stated: 'That computation is based upon the damages caused by decedent Jeffrey E. Epstein to Plaintiff as a result of repeated and malicious acts of sexual abuse, including rape, committed against Plaintiff.

'As a result of this repeated and horrific sexual abuse committed by Decedent Epstein on Plaintiff, Plaintiff has suffered significant past and future pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life.

The woman's lawsuit says that Epstein and Maxwell, his alleged 'madam', recruited her in the summer of 1994 at the Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan where she was in voice training.

Epstein 'started to slowly display his pedophilic ways when shopping with Doe and Maxwell. Instead of letting Doe pick out clothes she wanted to wear, Epstein insisted that she pick out and wear little children's cotton underwear', the lawsuit says.
